Are there any articles/#'s out there with how many people they feel stream games in their own house? I know I could do it, but I just always conclude I rather just play it natively for the best overall experience.

I stream and glad Steam supports it. Game machine is in the living room and if wife is watching the tv I stream to the office machine. Works perfectly for that with almost no artifacts or latency. Admittedly not playing many FPSs these days.

Hope they extradite that prick!

That lion killer is a real standup hunter. From the article:

Palmer in 2008 pleaded guilty to making false statements to U.S. wildlife officials about a black bear he had fatally shot in western Wisconsin.

From the other article:

Cecil had been closely studied by researchers at the University of Oxford since 2008 as part of efforts to study a decline in Africa’s lion population and to better understand the threats the animals face.

Well, I guess they learned what one of the main threats to a healthy lion population is.

I'm not the brightest crayon in the box, but when the fucking government says 'Hey.. we have this mandatory evacuation thing going on, and you REALLY might want to get out' then I'm getting out. I don't care if I have to walk out.

Unless you don't trust the government and think it's all an evil plot to round up citizens into FEMA concentration camps for processing and extermination. A sizable amount of the population believe this, and higher than average in FL for sure.

The name is pretty stupid, but they look like they're really going for that Crimson Skies feel. Has potential, even if that video has way too much time acceleration on it. It's almost as if at the dev shop, the production manager said, "Hey intern, come up with a game play demo we can put on youtube." and the kid came up with 40 mins of footage. Instead of redoing it, they just speed ramped it to cut it down to 4m.

Bored of a lifestyle of plentiful holidays and late night boozing sessions with Mark, Chris has decided to put everyone under pressure and commit to a launch in October of this year.

Heh, Introversion is one of the harder working devs in the industry, and one of the few independent dev shops left.

Introversion surely knows the difference between an alpha and a beta, and should do their part to not cause people to start using them as synonyms.

Updated key to game development terms:

  • Pre-Alpha = Alpha

  • Alpha = Pre Beta

  • Beta = Beta

  • Release version = Public Beta

  • There you go. And finally:

  • Game of the Year Edition = Release version

  • I would add one more. Here's the complete list:

  • Pre-Alpha = Alpha

  • Alpha = Pre Beta

  • Beta = Beta

  • Public Beta = Marketing demo

  • Release version = Public Beta

  • Game of the Year Edition = Release version

    Jeez, 5M? I have this on my wish list for the local coop with the kids play that it offers, but I didn't think they'd sell 5M. I thought it was more niche than that. Good on them.

    One of the first PC games I played, besides ample Sierra adventure games, was BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk's Inception. pew pew lasers!

    Played the shit out of that game.

    Also, still have my MW2 and MW2: Mercs disks. Might be time to load them up, although I know they've not aged well. Still, there's nothing like the old MW games out there.

    Florida teacher who had sex with three teens sentenced to 22 years in prison

    Seriously America, what the fuck?! That's some of the craziest shit I've ever heard.

    Pedophiles go to jail there unlike in Canada.

    I remember reading a story years ago about a man in Quebec who sodomized his daughters, 14 and 16. The judge let him off with probation (IIRC) because he had preserved the girl's "virginity" since he'd only used the "back door." It was such a major WTF story that I still recall it and remain baffled. Those poor girls are f'd for life emotionally.

    That is truly sick, however it has nothing to do with this story. This (very hot) teacher had a relationship with her 17 year old student. While that is indeed poor judgement and grounds for dismisal, there is no way that this was in any way abuse or should it warrant a 20 year jail sentence. It's fucking insane is what it is...this was a consensual relationship.


    Oh, I totally agree. However, someone mentioned "unlike in Canada" so I related a story illustrating that.

    Man killed by escort was likely a serial killer, police say.

    Been reading about this the last few days - that's some crazy shit!


    Reads more like a film script than real life. In real life, the serial killer almost always kills his prey. Lucky woman.

    Snowden can't realistically be pardoned, think of the floodgates it could open if he were? He's right in many ways and I'm sure several politico's even agree, but just cannot happen and it wouldn't happen anywhere.

    But Petraeus can get away with it? He did it for a blowjob, and Snowden did because he loved his country, and Snowden is the one condemned? Shows just who's really running America and has been for a long time now. If they can murder Kennedy and pardon Nixon everything else is child's play.

    Hey, hey, hey. We put away Reagan for Iran-Contra and Cheney for torture, didn't we?

    The main problem is that there isn't an independent impartial whistleblower protection agency that people can go to. You can't do it within the department that you discover the malfeasance, since that triggers cover-ups and reprisals. You can't use the FBI, since they're an instrument of the status quo that will pursue the whistleblower over actually dealing with the issues reported. Snowden took the only path he could while still ensuring success, especially knowing the harassment, persecution, and career destruction whistleblowers that worked within the system (i.e. Thomas Drake and William Binney) went through.

    I wouldn't miss the majority of online game journalism - since it's generally unethical and corrupt. The ethical sites just have to use another model to run their business. Innovate or die.

    I don't think games journalism is corrupt, but it has become irrelevant to me. I come to Blues, I see the game press release or early access story Blue posts, I read what you guys have to say, I go watch a youtube or two, then I make a decision.
